The Riverside Theater has made it easier for Iowa City audiences to see a play anytime in the next nine months thanks to two new additions in the 2022-2023 season.

On November 4, the theater announced on Facebook that its season will now include “The Roommate” and “Everybody,” rounding out a season of previously five shows and their annual tradition of “Shakespeare in the Park” at Lower City Park.

The Press-Citizen spoke to Artistic Production Manager Adam Knight to find out more about the upcoming productions. But people don’t have to wait until next year to see a captivating show.

Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Flick hits audiences just a day after Thanksgiving.

"The film," by Annie Baker, follows three underpaid clerks at a Massachusetts movie theater.  The Riverside Theater presents the show from November 25th to December 11th.

What is “The Roommate” about?

It is a play, as per the Riverside Theater website, which has been described as “The Odd Couple” meets “Breaking Bad”.

The Roommate follows Sharon, who recently got divorced and whose son lives across the country. She is looking for a roommate for her now empty home and is soon joined by Robyn, who needs a place to hide and start over.
